This was a comment I posted on TheOtherMcCain – Obligatory ‘Miley Cyrus Topless’ Post –
where it was quoted:
In her Rolling Stone interview, Miley says:
The 20-year-old says she’s well aware of how ridiculous she looks twerking, but guess what? She couldn’t care less.
“People are like, ‘Miley thinks she’s a black girl, but she’s got the flattest ass ever,’” she says. “I’m like, I’m 108 pounds! I know! Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I’ll probably never do that s*** again.”
As for comments being thrown around that she’s trying to be “black”, the self-aware singer says: “I’m from one of the wealthiest counties in America … I know what I am. But I also know what I like to listen to. Look at any 20-year-old white girl right now — that’s what they’re listening to at the club.”
She had a few choice words for the haters of her VMAs dance with theBlurred Lines singer also: “No one is talking about the man behind the ass. It was a lot of ‘Miley twerks on Robin Thicke,’ but never, ‘Robin Thicke grinds up on Miley.’ They’re only talking about the one that bent over. So obviously there’s a double standard.”
How can anyone be more retarded, vulgar, and completely miss the forest for the trees? How crazy is it to complain of a “double-standard” in crude sexuality sewer land? Who wants to read “views” on “asses,” on “sh*t,” or “the man behind the ass?” How can anyone think in a more crude way about women, men, bodies, and sexuality? How is it possible to drag the cultural and moral level down further into the sewer? It’s like chalk screeching on the blackboard and all these millions of retarded liberals thinking the sound is normal.
What few people have analyzed is how much liberals have normalized the worst of sexism in the name of liberation (sexual or for women). It’s exactly analogous to their claim that they are “liberating” homosexuals when the only thing they are doing is normalizing perverted and dysfunctional people in terms of sexuality.
There was a great comment made in reply to an Aussie article that protested how awful it was that people were criticizing Miley for being too thin derrière:
***Oh god, not another feminist article calling on the “sisterhood” to band together because some little twit flashed her bits in latex underwear.
She set the whole gender back, regardless of the size of her derriere. We aren’t calling for her head because she had a [saggy, flat, small] behind, but because she was parading it around for all to see in two sizes too small underwear. All she showed (besides some cheek) was that
women need to be highly [sexualised, whoreish, in-your-face] to get any kind of attention.***
To get any attention from liberals, that is. And who have become the worse in terms of sexism and in degrading sexuality. This article is the apex of how warped liberals are in their value hierarchy – the stupidity, the vapidness, the sexism:

It is particularly bizarre that 1st and perhaps 2nd wave feminists fought hard against everything this trash of “feminism” is now promoting as liberation. When “feminists” are sexist and completely degrade sexuality, we can see that the label has lost a lot of its meaning.
There was a time when Miley’s behavior would have been both frowned upon as being whorish and vulgar, because such attitudes and behaviors degrade women and sexuality, and so they were not acceptable, at the same time that many men would want to exploit her behavior for their own gratification (they were given permission to enjoy it as long as she wasn’t their wife/mother/daughter and it was some “other woman”). That was patriarchy during a good deal of the 20th century. Then came feminism and criticized the sexual objectification of women, their exploitation, etc. And afterwards, as liberals pushed more and more to degrade women and sexuality, in a move that increasingly included women as protagonists, there wasn’t much of anyone in the liberal camp left to criticize this war on women (and sexuality), since the more liberals degrade, the more they claim they are normal and legitimate – all in the name of liberation. (Nothing like adding insult to injury!)
Basically the only people to call for respect of women and a wholesome sexuality today are social conservatives. Unfortunately, if taken as a whole, this is a group which has a serious public communication skills deficit.
It is particularly disheartening to see so many people in the entertainment biz with a lot of power who are actively driving the race to the bottom in terms of American culture regarding sexuality. Behind Miley there is a very powerful industry and millions of fans – all with no ethics – and who are not going to be stopped unless other people stand up to them.
McCain followed up the post above with:
I will quibble with Alessandra’s criticism of the “public communications skills” of social conservatives. The real problem, as I see it, is two-fold:
1) Social conservatives have allied themselves with the Republican Party in a way that makes them largely dependent on the GOP, which has shown itself willing to exploit social conservatives (when this is deemed beneficial to Republican political fortunes) or conversely to scapegoat social conservatives (when the GOP needs someone to blame for its defeats).
2) Because academia, the news media and the entertainment industry are so dominated by liberals, it is very difficult for social conservatives to combat the Left’s harmful stereotypes about uptight puritanical right-wing “christofascists.” Furthermore, it is difficult even for social conservatives to locate their own natural leaders and spokesmen, when the liberal media focus their attention on the most idiotic kooks among social conservatives, and when various charlatans and hucksters are simply scamming for dollars, Elmer Gantry-style.
There are sane, intelligent and articulate social conservatives, but you’re never going to see them on the nightly network news, nor on the op-ed pages of the Washington Post or New York Times. But we must accept these disadvantages as inherent to the guerrilla struggle of the culture war, and find ways to overcome them.
This was my reply to him:
Totally agree on #1.
And on #2, we also agree completely on: Because academia, the news media and the entertainment industry are so dominated by liberals, it is very difficult for social conservatives to combat the Left’s harmful stereotypes about uptight puritanical right-wing “christofascists.”
I agree this liberal domination is the problem. In academia, it will be very hard to change, because they have a stronghold on hiring. But I find it hard to understand that the same should happen for the media and the entertainment biz’s, because with adequate funding, socons could do a lot more. And it’s not only liberals who have money in this country! For example, a TV series for adults, that presents socon views and values in an engaging way. Is there no channel where this could air? Is there no one to write and produce one? And even the news media, we find a lot more news analysis and coverage online, with news outlets and magazines, and sites and bloggers, than on the air. (not counting radio). It seems odd to me, for example, that many of the issues you or I address are not addressed on TV. There are hundreds of channels and opportunities… Is it exclusively a question of liberal domination, or do we lack more people with a variety of excellent communication skills?
Concerning the communication skills deficit, I think most socons I know of are religious and they mostly know how to talk about their views using a religious framework.This drives away people who are not religious, but who we need to and can reach. These are people who would be very amenable to the wholesomeness of the socon view of society, if it were presented in a non-religious context. And this could serve to diminish antagonism related to religious people. Socons have a major public rebranding challenge facing them, because liberals have succeeded, as you well note, in branding socons as awful AND backwards, and branding their own junk of ideology as “progress.”
“There are sane, intelligent and articulate social conservatives,”
Of course there are, I didn’t mean there weren’t, but in a media and academic space dominated by liberals, the visibility of these socons is so limited for the public at large. While the potential of the Net is enormous and wonderful, in part because it is so accessible, and there are no geographic boundaries, I still think that TV is the medium for shaping hearts and minds of large swaths of the public. Then again, there’s a lot that can be done on the Internet.
An example of what I think we need more of is this German movie: Big Girls Don’t Cry. It does exactly what I was talking about above. Dramatizes conflicting ideologies through the characters and exposes how harmful a liberal ideology is. Mind you, this is a movie for young people, not adults. You never see stories like this on TV or in the US, where the poor Catholic girl is the one who shows character and the rich, hip liberal character turns out to be a piece of junk.
On the lighter side, we also had Gilmore Girls. On the opposite side of the spectrum, I don’t know if you have watched “Scandal” – all the hypocrites and adulterers are Republicans and “social conservatives,” and all the supposedly “cool” characters are liberals. And of course, it’s homosexual agenda down your throats…
